Around 2,400 outages had been reported as of Sunday morning. The areas impacted most include the Parkland region, southern Manitoba west from Neepawa through to south Winnipeg and the Steinbach area.

Most of the outages happened because of heavy snow on trees, then those trees bend and contact power lines. There were a number of downed power lines that crews were working on throughout the impacted area.
